Fair Exchange

When a man in a truck shows up at your house to solve an urgent problem, what’s the right amount of money to pay?

I’m talking about a plumber who will make the standing water go away by clearing the drains. Same for the guy who will get the furnace going again at 11:45 p.m. on a cold January night.

How about the fellow from the glass company who will replace the windshield of your car in the driveway while you sip coffee in your pajamas?

I’ve paid a few hundred dollars for each one of these scenarios which is a very fair exchange.

How much would it cost to buy these nine lenses in one transaction?

About the same as a skilled tradesman who will put your life back on track. Deal!
